Peugeot 108 updated with fresh paint and new trim
Peugeot has given its entry-level 108 city car minor update, introducing a tweaked colour palette and a subtly revised interior
The Peugeot 108 city car has been updated for 2020, with a range of colour and trim updates, as well as some additional optional extras. The new model is on sale now, with prices starting from £12,785 for the three-door Active model, climbing to £15,790 for the range-topping, five-door Collection edition.
The 108’s body panels remain unchanged over the outgoing model’s, although Peugeot now offers a new metallic green paint finish and a choice of two exterior styling packs – Green Vector and Grey Vector – both of which add a range of decals around the car’s headlamps and door pillars.
Peugeot has also introduced a new green finish for the flagship 108 TOP! Collection’s retractable fabric roof. However, it can only be specced with the company’s Diamond White, Smooth Green, Ravel Black and Zircon Grey paint finishes, with Peugeot’s Antelope Red body colour being paired with a black convertible roof.
Standard equipment for the entry-level 108 Active includes LED daytime running lights, electric windows, manual air conditioning and a seven-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Buyers also get a range of safety equipment, such as hill-hold assist, a speed limiter, tyre pressure sensors and a brace of airbags.
The mid-range Allure model is priced from £14,140 and adds 15-inch alloy wheels, front fog lamps, automatic headlights, rear privacy glass, keyless entry and start, interior floor mats, a reversing camera, a rev counter and a contrasting black roof for the hardtop model.
Peugeot’s flagship Collection model upgrades the 108’s specification further, adding chrome door mirrors, coloured centre caps and a choice of two interior colours schemes. Buyers have their choice of either grey fabric upholstery with green trim for the air vents and gear knob, or tartan fabric upholstery and red cabin trim.
There’s also a brief list of optional extras including an integrated satellite navigation system (£400), metallic paint (£515) and a space-saver wheel (£70), to replace the car’s standard puncture repair kit. Buyers can also spec an improved safety package (£480) which adds active city braking, lane departure warning and a traffic sign recognition system.
Peugeot only offers one engine on the 108 – a 1.0-litre three-cylinder petrol unit with 72bhp and 126Nm of torque. The powertrain can only be specced with a five-speed manual gearbox and offers claimed WLTP fuel economy figures of between 54.8mpg and 58.9mpg.
